Despite its age (or perhaps because of it), it has proven to be the most helpful introduction to the subject I know. A little basic, but a great calc II textbook!

Subject: An interesting read
This is a good transit bus read for those with some background in mathematics. This helped me better understand what complex numbers really are and what they are not. For example complex numbers are not really "numbers" in the same sense as 'integers'. I wish some of the explanations were bit more clear. It takes several reads to understand some concepts. In summary, this need not be just a Textbook. This is a good read to understand mathematics.

I came late to Hardy's book, and wish I had been able to use this as my first year text instead of Apostol's. If you have a *good* understanding of the preliminary work required in algebra and geometry-- roughly that of what's taught at the junior college level; a sad thing to say that this level is beyond what most get in 'high' school these days-- then Hardy can be read directly, and with pleasure. If you need to get the prelims in, and have a desire to actually understand the basis of what is presented in most first-year calculus texts, then I can do no better than to suggest Hardy's text.

For grad students, Hardy is a great single volume refresher for further work in analysis and more advanced algebra, including number theory. Not quite as modern as Birkhoff and Mac Lane's text, or Manes' work, but this is the underpinnings of both works.

All in all, a real crackerjack text on the fundamentals of analysis.

Hardy is one of the pioneers, and alot can be learned from this treatise. Give it a try!
